I'm currently working on getting Pymol to run in stereo on a 3-screen
projection setup (a cylindrical screen of roughly 7 meters wide), using
Chromium to distribute OpenGL.
For this setup the scene size needs to be related to the dimensions of
the real-life display. For example, in order to display a molecule/scene
slightly in front of the screen means (in my case) to put it at roughly
3 meters distance from the viewer. The size of the molecule then needs
to be adjusted for this position to give a comfortable viewing experience.
I found some settings that influence things like sphere size, but these
all seem to build on an unknown internal conversion from chemical units
to OpenGL coordinates. Is this mapping fixed?
Is there a way to scale the size of the displayed scene? Actually what
I'm looking for is a way to specify what dimensions the displayed scene
needs to be.
